One of my absolute favorite things about living in NYC is the constant feed of new art. Seeing it helps me stay creative and up to speed with new event campaign ideas and detailed execution. Successful events incorporate hundreds of details and the more emotional ties to those details you can create for your guests, the better.
Bergdorf is one of the few corporate entities (without an long history of pulling heart strings, like Coca-Cola) that still connects emotion while pulling off stunning holiday windows year after year.
This winter, aside from the one luxurious gown showcased with equally fabulous accessories, their artists created masterpieces in each window box out of ordinary objects. For example, they had a window made of those little shiny tiles in various shades of blues and greens.. one made of leather and wood… And the pictures shown here are from a window full of items made (nearly) entirely of paper. PAPER!?!?!
These never cease to amaze me. Pictures truly don’t do these justice. In person, I could stand there and stare, appreciating each paper cut, crease, and origami paper fold for hours.
I’m pretty sure that should we ever move away from NYC, (along with the oversized candy canes) the Bergdorf windows will keep me coming back to the city during the winter time. I’ll just become another tourist flooding the wintery NYC streets. Just another road block while New Yorkers try to rush past to keep up with the hustle and bustle that is NYC.
